Nice SP in SE Texas Good lake but beware of hydrilla! July 2020

Overall, Choke Canyon SP is a nice park.  Large footprint in southeast Texas between San Antonio and Corpus Christi.  Good trails overall, however, could use better markings at trail intersections.  Choke Canyon Reservoir is large and the area we were at had very little motorized boat traffic, which made it great for kayaking.  That could be attributed to the low lake level and the overgrowth of hydrilla.  Saw a lot of wildlife, rabbits, deer, coyotes, alligators, many fish species, many birds and a sounder of hogs.  Sites are well kept and the boat ramp is large and long.  Could easily launch/recover up to 4 boats at once.  Lots of places to fish from the banks and jettys (but due to low lake levels, some are not accessible).  Will definitely return some day.
